TEACHER OF MATHEMATICS
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic teacher of mathematics to join our high achieving maths
team from September 2017. This is an excellent opportunity for an inspirational teacher to help the
Academy build on recent successes and further raise aspirations and outcomes. The Academy
was inspected by Ofsted in January 2016 and achieved a ‘Good’ grading in all areas. Applications
are invited from ambitious, enthusiastic and well-motivated teachers who have a proven track
record in securing outstanding outcomes for their students.
Broadlands Academy opened on 1 December 2012 and is sponsored by Academies Enterprise
Trust (AET). The Academy has made rapid progress since that point and has celebrated four
consecutive years of results above the national average. The successful applicant will have the
opportunity to work within an outstanding Maths team and benefit from a comprehensive
professional development programme supported through the sponsor, Academies Enterprise Trust.
Broadlands has served the families of Keynsham and South Bristol in the West of England since
1935. We are a small, mixed, fully inclusive comprehensive school taking children from ages 11 to
16 and remain one of the best choices for learning in the area. For every student who attends our
Academy, we aim to raise their aspirations, broaden their horizons and promote a life-long love of
learning. We are situated in extensive grounds and ideally located between Bath and Bristol. We
benefit from a number of links with the local community and have an excellent reputation.
Broadlands has started to develop its post 16 learning on site.
The candidate will be eligible to be part of the AET Subject Leaders Programme, with the potential
to go on to a Head of Department role in the organisation, and will benefit from a range of
wonderful opportunities to enrich their teaching and leadership role, including:
Membership of the AET national mathematics teacher network including national
conferences and three regional meetings each year.
Personal support and coaching from the AET mathematics regional leader
Visits to other Mathematics Departments within our community to observe and share best
practice as well as to coach and develop colleagues.

Last year results in Mathematics saw an improvement of 11% but there is more work to do to
ensure all our students are successful in this key subject area.
Our children need excellent mathematics teachers who can inspire them to love mathematics, to
develop the skills and attributes of mathematicians and to achieve their best; our teachers need a
leader who can support and challenge them to make this a reality for all children.
As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to
learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the
best teaching and the most up-to- date resources available to them. In each of our academies, you
will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your
own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes. You will also be
entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme, Cycle2work, childcare
vouchers and Westfield rewards.
